A brewing buddy of mine not on here broke one I gave him. I suppose that counts...

Only one so far. I got lazy and instead of pulling out a wort sample like I always do I decided to check the gravity in my 7.5 gallon keggle and it bounced off the bottom slightly cracking it.

I have 3 with the tips broken off and one that was broken beyond recognition. Guess that brings the count up to...

121

I've only managed to break 2 before realizing my error and switching to a refractometer. Now I just need to make sure not to break that too.

It is recommended to never hold a hydrometer by the top and shake water off it...DAMHIK

Got through the whole brew day, no problems, then went ahead and sat the empty boil kettle right on top of it

+1 = 127

Scored my first break today. Don't elbow your hydrometer when it's sticking out of a beaker to dry.

+2 = 129

But I don't think the second one really counts because I swear it was broken before I brought it home.
